Trendy food hall is popular with deaf students from neighboring university
It also functions as the unofficial dining hall for neighboring Gallaudet University, a private liberal arts college serving the deaf and hard of hearing. On any given day, you’ll see customers communicating with each other and often with the market’s employees in American Sign Language (ASL).
Starting this month, Gallaudet is partnering with the market and Tech Interpreting, LLC to teach ASL to anyone who’s interested for free. Each 90-minute class focuses on a different theme, including “Drinks and Chat Phrases” and “Numbers, Currency and Time,” and they promise there’s no final exam.
If you live in DC or are just visiting, you can sign up for one or all classes, but space is limited.
